Having spent most of my life with my nose in a book and making up stories, studying literature was the obvious choice. So I spent 4 wonderful years studying English Language and Literature in Thessaloniki, and a semester in Belgium. During that time I kept thinking that writing fiction was my calling in life. But then everything changed.

After spending some time in Denmark studying human rights and injustice in Europe, I realised that there are so many interesting, beautiful, heart-breaking, and most importantly, real stories to be told all around me. So why make up my own?

Long story short, here I am in Groningen, studying journalism and hoping to bring these untold stories to light.
